How does drain jetting work?
Drain jetting is a high pressure cleaning method for blocked drains and sewer pipes. It works by pumping water – which is stored in tanks – through a high pressure hose fitted with a jetting nozzle. This forces powerful streams of water into the pipe, allowing drainage engineers to target blockages and dislodge them with sustained assault.
Drain jetting is most useful when removing larger, stubborn blockages from pipes. Jetting hoses can negotiate tight bends in pipes, so are great for tackling clogs that would be difficult to reach by any other means – drain rods or DIY clearing kits, for instance.
Drain jetting is also an effective preventative measure. The sheer focussed power of the jet spray won’t just remove a blockage, it will clean the pipe surface itself, reducing the risk of grime, oils, fats and other waste products gathering and turning back into a blockage. As you can expect, this also improves the flow, efficiency and performance of your pipes; think of drain jetting as a highly intensive spa treatment for your sewer, refreshing it and restoring it back to peak performance.
